Weather in Prague in winter: holiday features

Like Pushkin’s Tatiana, who is a “Russian soul,” we love winter To coldness, wind, and at home hot tea and a fireplace. therefore the thought of New Year’s Czech Republic is close to our heart.

It was a lyrical digression, and now the facts: the weather in Prague on the New Year in most cases unpleasant. Air temperature fluctuates around zero: at night it drops by 2-3 degrees during the day rises. In general, the weather in December is rarely below zero. If a the sun is shining, maybe up to +one 0 heat. Blowing is not strong, but penetrating, moist wind.

To the question whether there is snow: rare precipitation in the photo look picturesque snow on tiled roofs, and below turn into liquid porridge. It’s good that they don’t handle reagents in the middle of the road. – saves shoes, though not from moisture. In January, a little frosty

The most successful outfit for walking in winter Prague – waterproof jacket and waterproof shoes. For no matter how beautiful hotel, lie there with a runny half-vacation – extremely offensively.

How is Christmas celebrated in Europe?

Ideally, it’s worth planning New Year holidays in Europe like this way to capture Catholic Christmas – December 25th. Two reasons for doing this:

  1. Practical: add a week rest to the official weekends.
  2. Emotional: fairs, decorated houses, shop windows, joyful faces of the townspeople. The atmosphere charges for the holiday. And even the dull weather brightens up the lace-boot with mulled wine.

Christmas bustle ends in the second half 24 December At the same time, all large stores are closed (and up to 26 numbers). On the streets are mostly tourists. Dinner at Christmas Eve is carried out in the circle of relatives and close friends; believers sent to the service. In the morning, children (and not only) are looking for gifts in socks hung around the house.

Top 5 hotels in Prague on the advice of tourists

Noted the best hotels in Prague according to the “price-quality” according to reviews of tourists and checked how much is the cost of living in the winter of 2019-2020. Prices are per 2-person standard for a week. (26.12-2.01):

  • 3 * Atlantic Hotel – € 1100
  • 4 * Grand Hotel Praha – € 1650
  • 4 * Hotel UNIC Prague – € 1,400
  • 4 * Dominican Hotel (ex. Savic Hotel) – € 1700
  • 3 * Alton Praha – € 1000

Personally, our approach is this: the best is, of course, good, but too expensive to beat :) Therefore, we have compiled a list where You can stay in Prague, slightly sacrificed conditions / comfort. Not that inexpensive (peak period!), But more or less:

  • 3 * Aparthotel Susa – located near the fair on Peace Square, so you have to be active on foot – for self-defense already недоступен, зато можно взять тур на двоих >> за 85-90 000rubles
  • 3 * Abito Hotel – getting to the squares only by transport, but the hotel itself is decent, offset by the price – € 765. He is one of популярных бюджетных отелей для тура >> – от 70 000rubles
  • 3 * Ibis Praha Mala Strana – network hotel, comfortable on the road junction – € 950. Тур на двоих >> –from 75 000 rubles
  • 1 * Hostel Advantage – yes, hostel, yes, in a room for 10, but him strikingly positive reviews and location right in center – € 420 (for two)
  • 4 * The Charles Hotel – not as “evil” for the price as Fours from the list above and no less good, close to Charles Bridge – € 1,100

Who plans to celebrate New Year in a hotel in Prague? Behind show programs – which are paid separately – you can not vouch, most of them are dull and fleeting. The menu is on level, but waiters and strive to carry everything away immediately after 00:00. As An example of this is New Year’s Eve in 5 * Hilton Prague and 5 * Ambassador Zlata Husa: for an additional 200-250 euros guest gets dinner (no drinks), a party and some company.

And remember that for a trip to the capital of the Czech Republic on holidays especially relevant early booking. Many hotels in Prague on The new year is already completely sold out. And in the above hotels the numbers literally melted away in the eyes while writing this articles!
